Krispy Kreme fun facts:
oVernon Rudolph rented a building in what is now historic Old Salem in
Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and began selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts to
local grocery stores on July 13, 1937. The delicious scent of cooking
doughnuts drifted into the streets, and passers-by stopped to ask if they
could buy hot doughnuts. So, he cut a hole in an outside wall and started
selling hot Original Glazed doughnuts directly to customers on the
sidewalk. The rest is history.
oA typical Krispy Kreme store produces more than 3,000 doughnuts per hour,
but larger stores can produce up to 12,000 doughnuts per hour.
oHot Doughnuts Now®: A beacon of golden delicious tastes, when lit, the Hot
Doughnuts Now® sign announces to elated doughnut fans that Krispy Kreme
Original Glazed doughnuts can be purchased hot off the line. Get the app
